So, I told myself that as a break that if I listed stuff on Ebay today I was allowed to sew real clothes for myself. So… I started a 1930’s jacket.
From the pattern stash, a mid 30’s jacket pattern. I wanted the one with wide lapels because it was the only jacket pattern that would fit my B Black and Sons remnant bin piece of wool.
I’m not too happy with how thin it is, but ah well- what do you want for only 3 hours of work. Just needs buttonholes and a hem at the bottom and sleeves. It’s unlined, so I guess I could tack the facing to the interlining, too- if I get industrious.
